Welcome! If you're here, it is likely that you are looking for someone to talk to, that you can trust to help you work through issues that are troubling you and someone who you hope will understand. The first step can sometimes be the hardest as, when we are struggling it can often be difficult to reach out, to know where to start , or to imagine that anyone might understand our perspective.
I know that talking helps, and that working with someone who we can trust and who will meet us with kindness, can make all the difference. I am an experienced counsellor based in the North of Cambridge. My approach is founded on the principle that we all have the potential to live a rich and fulfilling life. I offer a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is troubling you. I will listen without judgment or ridicule and help you to bring a deeper understanding to what is concerning you.
Many of my clients come because they finding that life is a struggle, and are experiencing anxiety or depression, going through a time of great change or upheaval, or have experienced the breakdown of a relationship or a loss. I work from a holistic context which sees problems not just as difficulties to be overcome, but as part of a process which may contain a message or call from a deeper part of ourselves that is longing for change. I will listen deeply to what you bring and support you to find your way through and discover what you need.
At the moment, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, I am only seeing clients online. I hope to resume face to face working soon. I work from a quiet room in Waterbeach village which has frequent rail services from Ely and Cambridge and lies close to the A10 and A14 with very good parking. I have an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology, a PG Diploma in Counselling and in regular supervision. I am BACP Registered. I welcome any questions that you may have.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
